Surprise Trunk Show with Rivini

Erin, Stylist

As summer comes to a close (well, lets face it, it is going to be hot until the end of October around here!), we decided to have a surprise RIVINI TRUNK SHOW! The latest collection from Rivini will be here on August 23rd-25th. Here are just a few of the gorgeous gowns headed this way (and because our captions are on the fritz, clockwise from top left: Chrystelle, Isabelle, Vionette, Collette):

To create the Spring 2013 collection, Rivini's designer Rtia Vinieris was ispired by an image of a ballerina, lightly prancing next to an indoor pool, infusing every gown with a light airy quality and a soft, textural feel. With a mixture of lace, organza and a touch of structured whimsy, this collection is a must-see. Book you appointment for the trunk show today!

Encore, Encore!

Erin, Stylist

We are seriously swooning over the new Encore Collection by Watters, short gowns designed to be easy and beautiful, and you can absolutely wear them again. We have been on pins and needles waiting for the dresses to arrive at Mia...and they are finally here!!! We are so excited, in fact, that we had to display them in our window as soon as they came out of their boxes.

These gowns are perfect for your rehearsal dinner, your reception, your showers, and they even make amazing dresses to wear on your honeymoon!

Something Old, Something Blues, Something EXCITING!

Emily, Co Owner

We are three short days away from the third annual "Something Old, Something Blues" Bridal Event at the legendary House of Blues, and the excitement is almost more than we can bear! Swag bags have been prepped, booth arrangements finalized and of course the best part... the gown line-up for the fashion show! 

Naturally the luxurious Spring 2013 Kenneth Pool Trunk Show  (in store this weekend only, have you made your appointment?) is the crowing jewel of our runway collection, but with over twenty stunning looks, there is something for every bride and wedding vision. Here's a few behind the scene pictures to share the excitement... 

(To the right) Kenneth Pool opens the show! Pictures, and words for that matter, do not justice for this gown. It is a show stopper!  

(To the left) Polished, sweet and glam all right in a row. Like I said, something for everyone.


(Both) Our Southern inspiration!
Voluminous, upswept hair (to be coiffed by the amazing Tre Spa team) and sweet blooms in blush shades accenting the bridal looks.

Haven't purchased your ticket yet? Not to worry! Visit the "Something Borrowed, Something Blues" ticket link here to purchase!   And may we recommend the VIP treatment?

VIP brides will enjoy early access, personal time with the vendors, champagne as you mingle, a  swankier swag bag and enjoy the delicious and famous Gospel Brunch before the fashion show! 

Swarovski on the Horizon with Kenneth Pool

Emily, Co-Owner

Watters, Watters everywhere is there a Swarovski in sight? Yes! This weekend with the Kenneth Pool Trunk Show, August 16th - 18th.

We know one designer cannot be perfect for every bride. For that very reason, we have followed up the soft charm of Watters with the very opulent and glamorous look of Kenneth Pool.

You may or may not have noticed, but this is Mia's first trunk show featuring Kenneth Pool in over a year! Once you lay eyes on the extraordinary gowns, you will instantly understand why this Summer Trunk Show is an absolute must if you are searching for a bold, statement making, swoon worthy gown. Kenneth Pool blends red carpet appeal with the special details that make it perfection for the aisle.


Also fun to note, the Kenneth Pool collection will be centerpiece of the Third Annual "Something Old, Something Blues" Bridal Show happening Sunday, August 12th. To see these gorgeous gowns on stage purchase your tickets here!

Inquiring Brides: Q & A with Maria Prince

Emily, Co-Owner

Vatana Watters & Maria Prince

It's finally the week of the Watters Trunk Show, and we are so excited! Only a few appointments remaining. Have you scheduled yours?

When you have the pleasure of working alongside people who genuinely believe in what they create, you find it doesn’t feel like work at all. And the Watters team’s zeal is infectious!
A few moments with Watters Vice President, Maria Prince, and you will feel it too!
Emily: Who is the Watters bride?
Maria: We think our brides have a certain charm, a casual elegance of sorts. In two words : effortless chic. She appreciates and understands finer details like supple silk fabrics, delicate embroidery or bold, luxe embellishments.
She is current and clever however doesn’t fall prey to every of the moment trend.
E: What was one of your favorite gowns from the latest collection?
M: A bit unfair! We truly love each one for their individual design personality. But to pick two it is – Odette for its rustic chic vintage inspired details and Chantalle for her intricate soft statement detail and silhouette
E: What would brides love to know about the Watters team?
M: This is the most passionate and dedicated team of individuals I have ever seen. An amazing group of people with such talent and drive who have the pleasure of doing what they love. At the helm is Vatana Watters, who leads with grace & style. She inspires us every day to reach beyond the ordinary.
E: What makes you personally feel passionate about bridal?
M: Knowing that what we do is such an important part of a bride’s special day. Never for a moment do we forget that this is a once in a lifetime experience. That thought drives each and every one of us to make each gown memorable. 
E: Being a lady of style, what are your other favorite wedding trends of the moment?  
M: Another tough one! I love the way each bride is incorporating such unique details into their big day. I do have to say I am loving the return of the exit dress. Such a nod to the past when the bride & groom whisked away with fanfare & fun. It’s the perfect way to express both styles sides of yourself – formal elegance for the wedding mixed with a modern charm mini to exit. Note to all – what a fabulous photo-op for the most divine after party pics!
We are so excited for Maria to arrive at Mia this Friday for the Trunk Show. Schedule your appointment now, 713.622.2022 .
